Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Brendan Griffin TD, visited a number of locations along the Wild Atlantic Way route in Kerry that will undergo major improvement works as part of Fáilte Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way Congestion and Visitor Management Project. The 50km stretch of the route is set to undergo infrastructural improvements at six key locations from Milltown Bridge to Clogher Head, taking in Slea Head Drive, Fahan Group Beehive Huts, Coumeenoole Beach and Ceann Sleibhe. The proposed works will improve public safety measures and alleviate traffic congestion and will include upgraded car parking and visitor facilities and additional signage. Funded by the Rural Regeneration and Development Fund as part of Project Ireland 2040, this Fáilte Ireland project, in partnership with Kerry County Council, will ensure the sustainable development of the tourism industry in the region.Photo:Valerie O’Sullivan/FREE PICS***

A Kerry TD has labelled a Wicklow Sinn Féin TD's comments on the Bloody Sunday commemorations as grossly offensive and dishonourable.

Brendan Griffin TD's remarks come after Sinn Féin TD for Wicklow John Brady commented on the commemorations in a tweet.

The Fine Gael TD says that Deputy Brady cynically and falsely claimed that Tánaiste Leo Varadkar had laid a wreath outside Croke Park for the RIC, before sticking his head inside to be impartial.

Deputy Griffin also claimed that another disturbing post on a Sinn Féin supporter's Facebook page incited extreme violence against the Taoiseach.

The Keel TD added that public representatives, irrespective of political and ideological differences, must lead responsibly.
